We are now into winter, time to snuggle up and be good to ourselves as well as embracing the wonderfulness that comes with getting out and about in the cold crisp air and enjoying all that the season brings. Again its about the simplicity of it all that keeps us positive, such as: a lovely walk with family or friends, curling up on the sofa in front of the fire and watching a feel good movie,making a delicious homemade stew or soup, getting into bed with a great book or audio, meeting up with loved ones, coming home.
In relation to last month’s news when we were delighted we were nominated twice in the Strabane Business Awards, congratulations to the winners in both categories. – Best New Business – awarded to Mint Solid Design
and Excellence in Innovation – awarded to Time Serve. For being just one year in business we are honored to have been nominated anyway and we have the certificate to say ‘Positive Parties was a FINALIST in the Strabane Business Awards 2011’ proudly up in the main office at PPHQ.
Our main big news this month was that on Friday 11/11/11, our Founder, Denise Devlin, & some of the team attended the N. Ireland Franchise Show in the Millenium Forum, Derry. There was a very positive energy about that day and in turn Denise felt that there was tremendous enthusiasm for the concept and brand of Positive Parties and a business that both the British & Irish Franchise Associations see as being very franchisable. There is already interest in both America and Canada from other Life Coaches & facilitators re. buying into the franchise and taking Positive Parties across the Atlantic. The American and Canadian audiences would certainly embrace the fun and positivity aspects with open arms.
Since Positive Parties plan to go global we are well aware that we have to make a difference in our own country first thus our target is to be delivering into more counties throughout Ireland. Therefore, Denise is off to the 5th Annual National Women’s Enterprise Day Conference in Portlaoise, 16th -17th November to network and spread the word about Positive Parties. Hopefully she will come back with more bookings and before we know it, by word of mouth, we will be cheering up staff teams and students all over Ireland with positive thinking and partying combined! Positive Parties from Donegal to Cork…..here we come!!
We have a busy month ahead for Positive Parties between primary school staff teams, various business’s, Hands That Talk, repeat business with Action For Children and a community group that had a taster session and have asked us back for a whole party now!
The Corporate’s are busy now before Christmas but we have had much interest in delivering team building sessions and Staff Development Days in January & February when motivation is low. If you are looking for a Positive Party to kick start 2012 in a positive light with your staff, then please book as soon as possible on 0044 81659505 as the PP diary for the beginning of the year is filling up.
